      Explanation

Amusewiki, beside the usual output formats (HTML, EPUB, LaTeX, HTML), is able to create slides in PDF via the Beamer package with LaTeX.

The slides feature is off by default, but you can easily activate it in the admin console with the checkbox under “Formats”.

Now, given that you generally don't want slides for all your texts, you have to flag it accordingly. You can do so with the provided checkbox in the text creation page, or simply adding the header

#slides yes

in the editing screen (i.e., in the .muse file).

It's important to note that the slide material must be placed inside a section, no matter how deep.

Material at the beginning of the text, not belonging to any section, is just ignored.

You can exclude sections of the documents from the slides by placing a comment cookie in the excluded sections.

*** this section will be excluded

; no slides

Here goes the lengthy explanation...

This is useful if you want to create slides and handout from the same source (as you should).

Finally, when you have the document ready, you can change the theme, the colors and the fonts adding it to the bookbuilder (using the button in the text's infobox) and asking for slides.

When writing slides, you probably want to leverage the list syntax, e.g:


*** Slide title

 - first item

 1. numbered items

 2. second item

 another :: item

**** Explanation

; no slides

Here goes the lengthy explanation...

Full example

{{COMMENT: ; no slides END_COMMENT}}:

** Activate

 - Amusewiki can produce slides
 - Activate it in the admin to enable them
 - Flag the text accordingly with =#slides yes=

*** Explanation

; no slides

See above, I won't repeat it here

** Syntax

 - material must belong to a section
 - keep the section short
 - exclude sections with a <code>; no slides</code> comment cookie

Again, Here we can write something which doesn't end up in the slides.
See the produced formats.
